And if I had to die today
Scatter my ashes on this place
Let me live on
In your grieving heart
But until that day
That we depart
This is the greatest peace
I’ve ever known
The greatest peace
I’ve ever known
But only your love
— House - Patrick Wolf (via imprettyflyforawifi)
To write? Because all this is going to vanish. The only thing left will be the prose and poems, the books, what is written down. Man was very fortunate to have invented the book. Without it the past would completely vanish, and we would be left with nothing, we would be naked on earth.
— James Salter (via mttbll)
I wonder when this empty feeling will go away, if ever.

Tears were warm, and girls were beautiful, like dreams. I liked movie theaters, the darkness and intimacy, and I liked the deep, sad summer nights.

It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself.

Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.

Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.

A life lived for art is never a life wasted.

The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.

With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?

You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.
